Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
Wine Enthusiast68% To Kalon. Young. Cigar ash nose, blackberries, oak. A big, firm, assertive wine, fairly tannic. Scads of juicy cherries and blackberries. Very fine, lots of character and elegance. Drinks well now with rich fare through 2020.
Wine SpectatorA superstar, amazingly pure, rich and explosive, with dense currant, blackberry and mocha flavors, revealing a persistent aftertaste.-Robert Mondavi vertical (December 2015). Drink now through 2022. 20,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has a deep ruby/purple color, notes of black currants, minerals, and toasty oak, and an elegant, restrained, aromatic profile. In the mouth, there is high tannin, medium body, and excellent concentration.
